Winter Learning Journey

The April School holidays have come to an end and it's back to school for us, but for many of our learners in Room 7, the learning never stopped!

Our learners signed up for and engaged with the Woolf Fisher Winter Learning Journey. This is an amazing resource created and run by Rachel Williams and her team, and we are so grateful for the amount of time and effort she puts into it so that our kids have something awesome to work on and blog about in the holidays.

We had 3 AMAZING efforts in Room 7, and these three are owed a huge congratulations on the hard work they put in. Well done girls, you are AWESOME!

Opinions - Deavay

Fantastic thinking Deavay. I love your arguments here! I especially like where you can tell us why you would personally say Yes, but think beyond yourself to say No for all kids.

Walt: writing who's side were on.
Task Description: Writing who's side were on and what our Opinions. writing examples for what our answer is. writing what we chose and why we chose.

Create a Kayak - Jayden

Wow this is a cool kayak indeed. What an awesome design Jayden!

Walt:make connections what we already read


I Have chosen the SLALOM K1 kayak with a black base and a red outline.I also decorated it with 15 stars with two thick triangles on the end of each end.

I think boys at the age of 10 would like this design because it got a nice paint job and it's pretty cool.

Chocolate tasting - Naomi

Yummm! Jealous of what you got to do in this lesson Naomi. What a cool review of the chocolate you tasted. I like the wrapper design also!


Magnificent, fabulous and amazing, all the words to explain how much I loved that chocolate.
This chocolate is a chocolate with a minty surprise in the middle. It cost $3.99 for a whole block but I just had 2 pieces. It has mint and oreo bits in the middle and covering it is milk chocolate.
His chocolate smelt amazing. It also felt smooth but the edges were kind of crazy. It looked nice to eat and when I went in to take a bite it was melting in my mouth( not really but you get the Idea).  All I could taste was the mint it wasn't bad I liked it a lot. I loved it and I really wanted more. If I could taste all of the flavors then That would be cool.

It was nice but If you could taste the chocolate with the mint that would be amazing. The oreos I could not taste but I could only taste it a little bit it tasted like cookies. I liked it but is was not my favorite.


I really recommend this chocolate but if you do not like mint then you can get the same chocolate but in different flavors. The flavors are strawberry, original and mint ( the one that I ate).  

Task description: This task was to talk of a food critic's perspective. The food critic is homer on the Simpsons. Were taste testing chocolate and the wrappers were off so we didn't know what it was.

Dear Diary - Bethan

What a cool comparison! Bethan shares her comparison story. One from the perspective of a kid travelling to New Zealand from Samoa 1000 years ago, and one from the perspective of a kid travelling to Samoa today.


Walt: think critically about what we read




Task Description: for this task i made a copy of the presentation and put it in my reading folder. I had to write what Afu would probably write if he could write down his language. I then wrote on the right what i would probably write if the plane allowed internet. I posted  it on my blog with labels, a Walt, a Task Description, and a Title.

Fishing Time - Amelia

Wow Amelia, this is a great presentation. It looks like a lot of fun! You are learning a lot about Lures and fishing technology. I particularly like your task description.

  Walt: think critically about what we read.



Task Description: Welcome to my first presentation for Term 2! At the moment we have been learning about fishing technology. I've created an presentation which has examples of fishing lures and what fishing lures are. To understand what lures are my teacher ( Mr Goodwin ) has set up reading's that help us understand what they are. Thanks to those reading's it helped me understand what lures are and if you read the presentation I bet you'll understand what I am talking about. I also used a wonderful site which helped me create a lure that will attract the fish that I am looking for. Thanks for reading my blog post and stay tuned for more!
